Andy the reason that you can shine a light on your camera and see an image is that your backlight is not working either due to a broken backlight bulb or the backlight inverter board the controller board failed

Black screen


You didn't say if you could see the subject in the LCD prior to taking a picture. If not, the lens isn't opening. If you can see the subject, it would probably be a defective sensor chip.

CAnnon Powershot A630 LCD screen will not light up when trying to take a pic. I can, however view old pics that I've already taken.


First press the DISP or DISPLAY button to see if that corrects the problem. If not, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Dark Screen


Your lens can not open the shutter, or CCD is dead. If you kept your camera in your pocket, most likely fine dust got in the lens and ultimetly between the shutter blades and now due to friction they can't open. But if you kept your camera clean, then it is dead CCD. You can have it fixed by replacing the CCD or the entire lens, but in particular this SD1000 camera the main board components can go wrong too. You can sell it "as is" on ebay for $50-70 and buy a working one for 80-90, the difference would be $20-30.

Canon Powershot SD1000: LCD screen display


Hopefully you resolved this already. If not, push the "DISP." button left of the MENU button. Pushing it gives you three options: black (for discreet shooting so your LCD doesn't give garner dirty looks from fellow concert goers), liveview, and liveview with info overlayed (shooting mode, ISO, etc.). Good luck!

You might have switched off the display by mistake, which is used as a power saving option and can be switched on by pressing the display button.

Pictures are black


My 4300 works fine until this week. No picture display on the LCD screen. Settings like date, exposure, etc.. are fine on the LCD screen. Able to get into setup mode and the colour menu selection box is fine. This shows that the LCD screen is working fine. Prior to this happening, I notice that when I took pictures in zoom mode, the picture turn out to be orange. I suspect this is caused by electronic failure. Light entering the lens cannot be transmitted to the LCD screen. Some photoelectronic stuff had reached its MTBF (mean time between failure)? Is there a way to save this camera?

Pictures are black


If you can display pictures in playback mode but screen is black in capture mode then the CCD sensor has stopped working and needs replacing.

Stopped taking pictures . . .


When previous pictures display fine but does not take new one directs the problem to camera mode problem. Some component is at fault in the main board which controls menu functions and display is damaged. For the solution, the main board is repaired or replaced by technician. The repair cost may run between $100 to $200 in US.
